There is something for everyone at Napili Kai Beach Resort! We have been spending Christmas here on and off since the 1980's. It's low key, family oriented, it has everything: a GREAT beach, pools and a jacuzzi, 2 miniature golf courses, a restaurant, a snack bar, kitchens in your unit, access to renting paddle boards and snorkel equip nearby -...

This is definitely the greatest place. We had a ground floor condo at beach front. The service was great and we could prepare our own meals if we chose. There is everything you could imagine, a wonderful restaurant "Sea House" with great wait staff. I would only have one complaint and that is no a/c. Had we known that we... More

We chose Napili Kai based on the almost unanimous set of 4/5* reviews as seen on Trip Advisor. As we wanted to be able to cook certain meals and make the most of the great view, we settled on an oceanfront studio (I had assumed this meant overlooking the entire ocean unhindered, but we actually overlooked Napili bay which was...

Our family booked our stay at Napili Kai through Donna Bender of MauiCalls. This was my family's first trip to Maui, and Donna expertly navigated the resort selection and directed us to Napili Kai based on our "wish list." Napili Kai was wonderful. The resort is old school - everything you need, and nothing you don't. Napili Kai has a... More

Our five night stay at the Napilli Kai got off to a rocky start....show to a ground floor room with no a/c it required some shopping and an $$upgrade to find the right spot for us. The staff was very willing to help and thePuna 2 building was great ,more private and an updated studio. The threat of hurricane Iselle... More

OK....so we didnt stay at the resort but the way we were treated at the resort was just plain terrible and very opposite of what Hawaii is all about. Yesterday we decided to go for a quick swim at the Napili beach and having arrived there it clearly states that use of chairs for hotel guests. Fair enough. As we... More

Hotel Staff was rude to us, We My wife and I had just spent a bundle at the Seahouse Restaurant which is connected to the property. The lunch was good as was the service. The waiter gave us a brochure with our bill which described the rooms and costs. He said we should take a look around. Adjacent to the... More

Unit 210 is recently refurbished. Kitchen had nice appliances with a quiet mini dishwasher. Nice furnishings. It slept 5 comfortably with a triple Brady Bunch couch. View was terrific. Dolphins swam up just past the lanai. Staff is friendly without being sappy. Some staff have been there over 25 years. Snorkeling was very very good with a big variety of... More

I have been coming to Napili since I was a little girl, so am a bit biased - in that I love that it stays the same. If you are looking for modern, busy, big pool, big spa, this is not going to be the spot for you. If you want a place where your kids can walk from the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Napili Kai. The entire staff were kind and did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Karen (Happy) the concierge was also very helpful! We visited several other Hotels during our stay in Lahaina and determined that the Napili Kai has the best location on the island! If we return to... More
